    Anyone for CONSOLE?

    I'm thinking about porting my CONSOLE skin to RR format with all the RR features - Anyone interested?

    Yeah, I've got a variety of skin flavours (including Carbon Fibre, brushed metal, Chrome and glass) and button accent colours (red/green/amber/blue).

    I'm nearing my own install now so I can setup in a real-world scenario rather than on my laptop for the best look.

    I'm a die-hard fan of Frodoplayer but his delayed release of Take4 has prompted me to look at this as a serious contender for my frontend.

    Can you post some thumbnails of the other flavours too please? This is yet another marvelous skin. Can you port it to NMC too please? If Netsuo gets back from his army duty in the next four days, NMC is back in town I presume ... and I love the way it works.

    Would be awesome MC STOO!!!

    I'm using frodo because of your skin, but I am a big RR fan! Would love to see this with all the RR features included!!

    And maybe you could add a nice LandRover emblem into it..

    Finally some time to myself...

    Okey dokey, I was gonna do a direct port of the CONSOLE skin for Frodo but I've decided it would be easier to redesign specifically for RR, whilst retaining similar elements from the FP skin. I'm debating whether or not to use flash, but that will be down to 'requirement' rather than 'request'

    I'll post screenies as I develop. When I release the skin, I will also be releasing the PSD's. They will contain the following 'accent colours':

    RED
    AMBER
    GREEN
    BLUE

    The following skin textures will also be available:

    WOOD BURL
    CARBON FIBRE
    BRUSHED METAL (dark)
    BRUSHED ALUMINIUM

    This means that users will have a total of 16 flavours to choose from, plus the ability to drop in their vehicle logo.

    It's gonna take a couple of weeks but I am coding for each flavour as I go along.

    Finally, the name....
